Frese on Mincy: "When you think back to some of our big wins in recent years, it seems like in so many of them, Laurin really played a part. When she’s healthy, she is a difference maker for us. She’s been through so much adversity, that we all really want her to go out with a terrific senior season. She’s can score in a variety of ways and get to the free throw line, which is what great scorers can do.”
